The Sword in the Stone

Other mistake: Merlin says, "Man will fly someday". For a few frames after he says this, his thumb on his pipe is painted blue, then returns to its normal color. This causes a blinking effect.

Continuity mistake: When Arthur is out hunting in the woods, Arthur is lying on a tree branch. In one shot, his pants leg is coloured brown, whereas, in the next shot, it is skin colour (as if he isn't wearing any pants). In the next shot, the brown pants leg has returned.

Continuity mistake: When Pelinore enters the castle, he takes the glove off his left hand. When he's passing Wart, however, his right hand is the one that is bare. Immediately afterwards the bare hand switches back to his left.

Question: What is the name of the germ that Merlin infects Mim with, and is it real or made up for the film?

Chosen answer: Malagolintomontorosis according to the trivia and it doesn't appear to be real.


Question: Why is Sir Ector so mean to Arthur? Why does he hate him?

Chosen answer: Part of it is the cliche of the abusive or angry step-parent or adoptive patent. Although this is something that does occur, Sir Ector just thought more highly of his own son and would rather see his son become king. He probably regrets having to take care of him, but felt obligated as a knight of Uther Pendragon. In addition, he's more of a brute and fighter and doesn't like learning (or magic). So when Arthur displays an aptitude towards learning over fighting, Ector has less in common with the boy and treats him as a servant.
